Low Carb Keto Pizza Chicken is great for lunch or dinner!
If you are following a low carb lifestyle it can be hard to sometimes find new and exciting meal ideas. I know we sometimes fall into a rut and I find myself making the same dished repeatedly every every. We love variety but I’m definitely a creature of habit. I love boneless skinless chicken breasts and how versatile they are. I’m used to seasoning them and baking but after a while I am chickened out and so are my husband and kids. It’s then, I turn to Pinterest for some new and more creative meal ideas.
We grab the kids a pizza at least once a week on the way home from hockey practice and I often pick the toppings off and then have a large Greek salad with chicken. The pizza toppings are totally low carb and taste great
If you’re new to the Keto lifetsyle, it’s mainly lean proteins such as chicken and beef and also high in fat. Almost all vegetables are ok to eat and some fruit such as berries. This Pizza Chicken uses lean boneless skinless chicken breasts, pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni. All the ingredients are Keto friendly and low carb. It’s a great way to get creative with the boneless chicken breasts you already have in the fridge.
